Local Courses
There are NADCA education and training chapters located throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Chapters are an extension of NADCA's education and training, and most offer selected NADCA national courses and programs locally . . . thus, expanding the technology transfer opportunities for every die caster. Chapters also offer a range of other technological and operational education programs specifically selected and tailored to the needs of die casters and suppliers in their chapter areas.

In-Plant Programs
All NADCA programs, courses and installations can be brought to the worksite for presentation. The cost in savings and scheduling advantages can be substantial!

In-House Programs
NADCA is now offering the "In-House Training Program for Operators and Technicians!" The In-House approach responds to the need of die casters to have control of the schedule, content and cost of training. It is a multi-module program that is highly cost-effective.

    Industry 4.0 • Why It Matters 08/27/2019 This webinar will cut through the techno-jargon and provide an introduction into what Industry 4.0 is, why it matters and a framework to evaluate where you are at today. It will then present real-world case studies from the die casting industry today. The webinar will discuss the key elements of developing a successful Industry 4.0 implementation roadmap around People, Process and Technology. Understand what it means and what having “smart” technology will do for your business and why implementing Industry 4.0 or even more generally automation should not be equated to manufacturing without people. The two case studies will highlight the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning for Predictive Maintenance and Predictive Quality, in order to improve first time quality and increase equipment uptime. The webinar will be jointly presented by Harbour Results and IoTco, a digital transformation company with real world applications of predictive analytics already deployed in Add to Calendar
